White Privilege gives Gay Marriage the whiteness it needs to become a social norm: Can Blackness become a social norm using the Gay strategy?
Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP leader from Spokane, Wash., who resigned after it came to light that she was falsely presenting herself as black outed as being white has repeatedly said she identifies comfortably as black. There is an ongoing uproar behind Dolezal’s admission of identity-fondness of the black body, but also an oversight of Bruce Jenner as Katlyn Jenner. An economic attack on Dolezal has continued, much like the structural violence against black Americans. If it’s okay for Katlyn Jenner to identify as a female, they why are society-change makers upset about Ms. Dolezal’s blackness? Is there an underlying strategy black Americans need to use to build equity? To pick and choose what social justice is to theoretical look like on an individual basis will bring us (black America) back to white only drinking fountains.
